One Tree Hill‘s final season kicks off this Wednesday at 8/7c, and while you may think you already know every little thing there is to know about the CW sudser’s last hurrah, Mark Schwahn is here to set you straight.
The OTH creator shares here, in his own words, the goods on what Season 9 has in store for the small town’s beloved twosomes — romantic or otherwise.
BROOKE & JULIAN | “I was really compelled by the fact that Brooke has wanted that family dynamic for so long — which is why in Episode 1, it’s funny to see how sleepless and miserable she and Julian have become. But at the same time, her life is not without its struggles, but the place she’s at currently is really good. Obstacles will present themselves, some of them family-related and some of them professional, and then there’s the matter of [Brooke’s Season 6 attacker] Xavier’s parole, which is also on the horizon. But for them, first and foremost, it’s that they have have a family now, and their responsibility towards that will dictate some of their choices.”
